The biggest curse that any family could face in today’s times is ‘when any of its family members is addicted to some substance e.g. Alcohol, Drugs or any of similar genre’. Very often family members write to me in super exhaustion- ‘Do anything but cure my son/ daughter’. Forget about the family progress, even basics of life go awry for those families. Strange na that life expects one to have many good habits to be super successful in life but only one bad addiction can render one perpetually drowned in abyss of gloom (not only for oneself but also for the entire family). Addiction could be to anything – smoking, drinking, drugs, sex, internet, gaming, sitcoms (Netflix) and Mobile phone etc. Sometimes, to people. And sometimes also to sleeplessness.
Have you been troubled with your propensity to lazy around all day, not get any work done and then feel bad about it at the end of the day? Mostly it happens when the habit of processing mediocre, useless stuff as day dreaming, TV, Mobile phone, over sleeping & time-pass friends sediments itself as a Vriti (tendency) into our psyches. If you very honestly feel that you are closer to becoming a master procrastinator THIS very implementable post is for you only. Come on, do not be lazy. Read this blog post right till the end. I promise- you’ll dig something unique for your own self. Massive dreams require super massive efforts. And the sooner you start looking for real solutions and ways to deal with procrastination and beat laziness out of your system; the better it will be. See it is simple- ‘Energetic people are more successful’ (Only exception- Mr Beans) 🙂 .
Just imagine for once-‘If we were to take sex out of our lives. I mean; we keep it only for pro-creation and not for anything more’. Imagine! Scary it will be from the world economy point of view. The candle light dinners at five star restaurants, lagoons, the Valentine’s Day industry, the travels to exotically romantic places, the red wines in costly glasses, the premium gifts, a large part of high end fashion, travel and hospitality industry will take a huge hit. A lion’s part our economy gets it spread in a way that two people could impress upon each other and then make it out in some corner. Precisely the reason why media glorifies sex a bit extra much than it really is. Casual sex and its pitfalls are never highlighted because no one makes money out of it!
If you look at it closely, life may appear like one big hurdle race, wrought with obstacles at every point. And doesn’t matter which walk of life we belong to – the hurdle race will always be there. If you want some literal examples – we can all look at the sports section of our newspapers. It always tells tales of extreme obstacles overcome with extreme will power. In the times of the lows in life, these stories of perseverance can go a long way in boosting morale, notching up the inspiration levels and give us a lot of hope.
Do you know why stock markets behave the way they behave? Or why Behavioural Economics is such an important branch of Economics? Because the assumption that human beings who run the markets and the economies are rational – is somewhat incorrect. Rather, hugely incorrect. Yes. Irrational people are everywhere. Some are very apparent, others are cleverly concealed 🙂 … and that’s why, dealing with irrational people is an art. One that we all need to practice!
We have conquered space, biology, technology, art and almost everything. Is it not strange that most of us are yet decrepit about the most basic thing in life- ‘Love’? More wars are being fought inside homes and inside relationships than on the border. Joint Families were in fashion just a few decades back. Over time, it came down to husband-wife-kids. Now, even the husbands- wives want to live separately. Our intellects & arrogances might have grown because of our exposures to the world; but our so called high intellects are slowly becoming divisive (for our own good). Slowly they are turning schizophrenic too. Most relationships are failing these days. Scary!
